Since 1992 Mountain Bike New Zealand (MTBNZ) has been the national body for mountain biking in New Zealand and it is responsible for supporting the development and growth of both competitive and recreational mountain biking.
Mountain Bike New Zealand and Cycling New Zealand work together to grow and develop mountain biking as a sport for New Zealanders, through promoting participation and membership, development pathways, securing and administering national and international level competition.
As the sports’ volunteer member organisation, MTBNZ represents Clubs and interfaces with them to inform its members.
